that a criminal background check. make certain they pay any fines we establish. pay their taxes which is a critical part of this whole comprehensive approach. give them a chance to earn their way into citizenship learning english and the basics about america's history. and making sure that the amount of illegal immigrants -- amount of legal immigration that is allowed in the united states is based on the state of our economy. we are going to enshrine in here the principle when it comes to job openings americans get the first grab at it and the first opportunity and that's the way it should be. we're going to make certain beyond that there are opportunities for others and there are a variety of different ways we approach it. let me close by addressing one issue that is near and deer. it's been 12 years, 12 years since i introduced the dream act. i never gave up because when you meet these young people you can't give up. but there were some disappointing times and sad times. the last time around i met with these young people and i told them i'm never giving up on you, don't give up on u

ran a great campaign. he created issues out of nothing, like the class war issue on taxes, which romney was not able to make the argument for. let's be honest about this. romney was a man who spoke conservatism as a second language. remember, and one of the primary debates, he wanted to show how conservative he was and he said that he ran a severely conservative administration as governor of massachusetts. severe is a word that you associate with a tropical storm, not the government. [laughter] he had trouble making the case. we have a very strong bench, half of whom is here in your conference. young governors, rubio in congress, and a whole slew of young governors, degeneration -- a generation, you can say they are marinated in conservative philosophy, thinking very deeply about a new kind of conservatism. but they, for their own reasons, some personal and some simply to new and were not quite ready did not run. and we had a weak field in the primaries. romney was obviously the best and the only possible presidential candidate. but he was weaker than the ones who were sitting on

job approval on handling the economy, taxes, unemployment, spending, gas prices. we are not the only people who knew that. chicago knew that, too. they were good to do something about that. then it was, about 42%. romney has been a job creator. he has made things. he has balanced budgets. he has hired and fired people. he will take a business experience and put it to washington. a couple things wrong with that. one is, the economy by itself, romney and obama were 43 and 44% each. you need 51% or above to win. the obama people kept adding points for women, immigration, hurricane sandy. they were able to get their realization that economy may be most important,, but it is not the only thing. you only had to choose one candidate, you do not have to choose one issue. where do people who believe in free well, human reason, intelligence and your ability and have issues that are important to you. now republicans dealing with fiscal cliff and debt ceiling and sequestration -- the average family in this country lives with debt. quite a bit of that. they do not look at that as a bad thing. it

that in our tax code. our tax code is so complicated because there are so many giveaways to the special interest groups or the well-connected that don't privilege americans that work hard and try to put food on the table. >> i have often wondered and explored this if people have an appetite for limited government? americans in general, the government keeps getting bigger. we struggle to obtain the a slower right of growth, which is a great vibtry in a way it is. have you found an appetite for limited government? or limited government for others and not for themselves? >> i believe so. i said often times in the campaign trail that the constitution is very popular and big government is not popular. that is where we should anchor our program and policies. you saw this in the president's speech on monday even though it was a very liberal speech. he didn't call for big government. >> the inaugural address? >> yeah, the inaugural address. that's because he knows what bill clinton knew in 1996, that big government is over. so i do think -- >> the era is over. >> yeah. again, if political leade

in washington with the tax and spend liberals. every one of those phrases is contemporary. it is and attitude for more than a judgment that shuts us off from accurate history and from their promise of democracy. i am hoping this issue focusing on race and people's resistance to discuss race, to insist that race is solved and it is unsolvable. they're both mean we do not need to discuss it. this issue discusses it. when we do discuss it, when we learn things, that is when good things happen. that is the doorway to the promise of freedom. america is still not there yet. i hope we can take advantage of this time. we're marching through these 50- year anniversaries. bring our history back into balance and address the problems of the future with intelligence and with patriotism. thank you. [applause] >> good morning. >> good morning. >> i'm so happy that amtrak or marc got itself together. it was wonderful to hear the comments that have been made so far. greetings on behalf of the kellogg foundation. i am gail christopher. f ce president o the board of directors that has had the audacity and coura
